Kemar Roach stunned England with a dramatic late burst to give West Indies hope of an improbable victory in the first test at Lord’s on Sunday.

Roach took two wickets for seven runs in eight balls, including England captain, and first innings century-maker, Andrew Strauss, to leave the hosts 10 for two at the close of the fourth day.

England will need a further 181 runs to reach their seemingly modest victory target of 191 on Monday’s final day in the first of this three-test series.

England 398 and 10 for 2 (Roach 2-7) need a further 181 runs to beat West Indies 243 and 345 (Chanderpaul 91, Samuels 86, Broad 4-93)
